Fashion Staples – What you need to have in your closet right now (Tops-Shoes)

I have always struggled with fashion. From being 16 and having no idea what to wear outside of grungy tumblr to being 21 and gaining weight to the point where I don’t even want to wear real clothes. It’s hard to figure out what pieces to wear and how to style anything, but once you find an aesthetic(s) you like, run with it. You can always change your hair, clothes, and makeup. Here are 5 pieces from every clothing category I think you should own for a neutral toned, classic wardrobe.

I will not be sharing how I would style it or why you need to buy it. If you want advice on either of those or a separate blog post dm me @theyoungeditorial on Instagram! I just don’t want the post to be too overwhelming! Each link will be the item of clothing I have so I know it is good quality and worth the purchase.

There will be a second post on jewelry, accessories, dresses, and misc.
